Ingles in Canton


Join us for a great day of motoring fun.

Our day will begin at 10:00 a.m. off I-40, Exit 31 (Highway 215), Canton, ,NC exit. Travel approx. 1/2 mile to Ingle’s Grocery Store Parking lot (left side of road, Hwy 215) where we will meet and give a flash drive or CD to every MINI along with a map.

This will be your narrative guide as we drive to different locations. There are additional stories that highlight legends, tales and history of the Cold Mountain area. The book “Cold Mountain” was written by author Charles Frazier who grew up in this community which is based on the movie. During this tour we will visit nine historic sites in the Bethel community of Haywood County, NC which is home to Cold Mountain. It is one of the oldest settlements in western NC and the mountain lies completely within federal lands and is uninhabited. It rises to 6,030 feet above sea level and is the 40th tallest mountain in the eastern US.

We will plan to stop for lunch around 12:30 p.m. at JukeBox Junction in Bethel community.

After the Cold Mountain run we will head towards the Blue Ridge Parkway and take in some nice twisties through the Pisgah National Forest. We will stop and visit The Cradle of Forestry ($6 admission), which is home of the “Birthplace of Forest Conservation of American”. We will stop by Sliding Glass Rock and Sliding Glass Falls as well. Our drive will bring us into Brevard, NC and then we will head towards I-26. 

Suggested homework is to see the movie “Cold Mountain” prior to coming on the MINI tour.

 More information to come as the date gets closer. Please sign up so that we can have enough CD’s for every MINI. In the meantime, see you on the road

Bring your radios and have them set to 7-21
